London Residential Home Fire Safety 'Horrifying'...

Fire Safety Order 2005Earlier in the week, I blogged information about fire safety seminars being run by South Yorkshire Fire Service.  Two of these dates are aimed at residential care home owners home (Residential Care Home Owners (09/02/2012 and 10/02/2012).

This morning I cam accross an investigation by the BBC into residential home fire safety in London...

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-london-14190378

29 of the homes investigated have not reached the appropriate standards since 2010, and he homes were guilty of breaches including:

  • No fire escape plans
  • No training for staff
  • No marked fire exits

Since this investigation there has been a call for a public register care homes so that members of the public can check the the required precautions and standards are in place.
